Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot

Saturday, May 30, 2015

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series, comes the very first adult installment, which follows Princess Mia and her Prince Charming as they plan their fairy tale wedding--but a few poisoned apples could turn this happily-ever-after into a royal nightmare.

For Princess Mia, the past five years since college graduation have been a whirlwind of activity, what with living in New York City, running her new teen community center, being madly in love, and attending royal engagements. And speaking of engagements. Mia's gorgeous longtime boyfriend Michael managed to clear both their schedules just long enough for an exotic (and very private) Caribbean island interlude where he popped the question! Of course, Mia didn't need to consult her diary to know that her answer was a royal oui.

But now Mia has a scandal of majestic proportions to contend with: Her grandmother's leaked "fake" wedding plans to the press that could cause even normally calm Michael to become a runaway groom. Worse, a scheming politico is trying to force Mia's father from the throne, all because of a royal secret that could leave Genovia without a monarch. Can Mia prove to everyone--especially herself--that she's not only ready to wed, but ready to rule as well?

Goodreads Summary

Since my wedding is coming up in June I really enjoyed this book.  I loved that Meg Cabot brought back Mia from the Princess Diaries.  The same fun tone was present in this novel that was pervasive in the Princess Diaries.  Mia and Michael have busy schedules and haven't been able to spend much time together.  As a result, the reader gets insight into what has happened in other characters' lives beyond just Mia's.  Mia's friends come over and she has online conversations with Lily.  Mia's father has gotten in trouble and there might just be another family member waiting in the wings.  The royal throne is even at stake!

This book was filled with drama, action, romance, and humor.  I found Royal Wedding very difficult to put down and had to loan it out immediately as it was so popular.  I enjoyed the vibrant feel of the characters and the fast-paced plot.  Overall, this book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.
